Our new friend Ron, from New York, gave me a cd of the NOTEBOOK, wow, I fell in love with JamesRead More Garner all over again. He was wonderful, on the screen and off. No scandals and married for so long. A truly wonderful man. Thank you God for sharing him with us for such a long time. He will be missed. Antoinette

RIP Mr. Brown. You finally get to see your angel, Nicole. At 'Brainwashed_In_Church': Once again,Read More why are all your posts so negative? Nevertheless, I'll pray for you.

Negative isn't the same thing as realistic.

Brainwashed, perhaps you're praying to the wrong God or not praying at all? Or maybe you mock whatRead More you fear (or don't understand)? Since you seem to see yourself as all-knowing (others might say a know-it-all), can you say definitively praying accomplishes nothing? Or are you just saying in your life? Most people don't pray as if it to do so is the equivalent playing the lottery (if I play enough, I will eventually win/get what I want!). Praying is a personal conversation with God, and not all prayers are answered. And no doubt you've prayed and felt your prayers went unanswered. Get in line...and realize going to God in your need or suffering is not like going to see the wizard of Oz. While I am confident none of this will change your mind, am curious what happened to you that causes you to mock/insult or verbally attack strangers who have their own beliefs that are not yours?

Wonderful. Most disgusting power play ever- squabbling over the issues of a deceased person. ThoughRead More Rooney should have had a will that specified that issue of burial. Still remembering Gregory Peck in that uniform right now...............

karma..goes around and comes around........maybe next will be Brian D"arcy~~!!
Lisa Ohlund March 29, 2014 at 01:11 am
Mr. or Ms. D. Jude - If by karma you mean that he will have a wonderful afterlife because of the wayRead More he lived this life,then I would agree with you; Col. Foley was the epitome of an officer and a gentleman and a heckuva water man. If you mean something derisive, then you never met him, and I will pray that one day you will rest in peace.
Sid Caesar has died. He was 91. Patch file photo.
GreenInOC February 12, 2014 at 07:07 pm
If you ever get a chance to watch "Hail Sid Caesar!", it's a fantastic documentary. I'veRead More always found it fascinating that modern day comics continue to speak of Sid in awe and admiration.
Dave February 13, 2014 at 07:27 am
No question Caesar was a genius but he also had a great eye for talent, hand picking his co-stars onRead More "Show" and writers, Mel Brooks, an 18 year old Woody Allen, Neil Simon, Larry Gelbart and Carl Reiner to name some of the most prominent. I had the great privilege and pleasure to see Mr Caesar give a two hour talk in the board room of the Screen Actor's Guild on Wilshire just east of the La Brea Tarpits about 8 years ago. Although the once tall and strapping Caesar had become shrunken and bent with age, once he was seated on the dais with moderator Joe Mantegna, you'd have thought you had been transported back to 1954 as Caesar came alive telling us of his memories working with all these great talents while tossing out some of his best bits- the foreign language imitations being as fresh and funny as they were on "Show of Shows". It was a night I won't soon forget and I am so glad I was able to see him in this small and intimate room. Rest in Peace, Sid. We won't be seeing your like again any time soon.

@Dave, what a treat - I wish I had been able to listen to him speak in person.

Guess we know who has the money to do whatever they wish.... "In February 2012, the church'sRead More property was sold to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange for $57.5 million. The church is making $29 million in renovations to the famed Garden Grove cathedral"
Paula Thomas February 12, 2014 at 07:57 am
Aside from all there problems of recent times they touched so many lives with the good news messageRead More of our living Christ. When involving families in any business especially in-laws it usually becomes problematic. It's a shame that at the end of their lives, after so much good they had given to OC and the world, it had end sadly. RIP sweet Arvella Schuller
Pascal February 12, 2014 at 06:47 pm
What is money, though, really? Did someone see an actual exchange taking place? Since all of us areRead More related, one way or another, including animals (since apparently a Chimpanzee's DNA is 98% identical to a human's) and humans are not a majority on earth, what constitutes money? Wouldn't that be that which is most valuable to the majority? Therefore.... air? Water? Then how is it quantified? What the heck is a dollar? Just saying..... not that I have a solution to the problem.

Lucia was everything we should each aspire to be – loving, kind, innocent, dependable,Read More responsible, honest, intelligent, diligent…pick an admirable trait and she embodied it. More often these days, folks lament the fact that good news doesn’t sell – sadly to little avail. Just last night, a neighbor commented that the reporting of the horrific outcome obscured an opportunity to spread the word about a truly remarkable person who lived among us. So, I applaud you for chancing the risk of reporting good news. It was a surprisingly uplifting end to a very difficult day.
